Tassie Gnaidy

Digital Humanities for Cyberinfrastructure Coordinator, Research Technologies, Indiana University  

Having written a dissertation on the monstrous female body in early modern England to earn a PhD from the University of California-Santa Barbara, Tassie has now completed an MIS from Indiana University with a specialization in Digital Libraries. While a graduate student she worked as the project manager for the English Broadside Ballad Archive, as a mapping intern at IU’s Digital Library Program, and at the graduate assistant for the IQ-Wall at the Herman B. Wells Library. She was also a HASTAC Scholar for 2012-2013, where she helped to run a forum on Visualization Across Disciplines. Last academic year she focused on some new ventures: the Science on a Sphere installation at Indiana University-Bloomington’s Cyberinfrastructure Building and a course on Virtual Heritage taught by Bernie Frischer in which they digitally reconstructed niobids found at Hadrian’s Villa.
